Welcome to the SHIELD Project Website!
SHIELD is an exciting project helping young people express themselves using Art, Culture and Technology (ACT) initiatives – including a retreat, summits and youth led events.
SHIELD empowers Labradorians aged 14-18 to explore wellness, relationships, self-worth and sexual health in fun and interactive ways that include working with artist role models and health care professionals.
Check out our Youth Opportunities page to find out more about SHEILD Initiatives and how you can participate.
SHIELD is a three-year project funded primarily by the Public Health Agency of Canada’s HIV Hep C Community Action Fund, with additional supports from the Public Engagement & Planning Division of Government of Newfoundland & Labrador, sponsored by the Labrador Friendship Centre.
